Here's the deal:
First Issue: A few of you have mentioned going somewhere other than Ocean City this year, and possibly just turning this into an annual APKAD trip. I have no problem with that. :) Suggestions include: New York City, or somewhere a little nicer than Ocean City, but still keeping it at a beach. I'm open for suggestions! This isn't just my trip, and I don't want to be mr. dictator and say, 'no! we're going to ocean city like we always do!' :) So let me know about what you may want to do.
Second Issue: Terra has suggested that we open this trip up to the rest of the Cosi's crew. Again, I have no problem with this. Well, at first I did, and thought, but this is supposed to be for just APKAD, I mean, we did start it off as just APKAD. Actually, come to think of it, we didn't. It started off as APKAD & Friends, because I don't think Rachel was officially part of APKAD at that point. :) So we could turn this back into an "APKAD & Friends" trip. I'm leaving it up to you guys! You all let me know, and I'll extend an invitation out to the fellow Cosi's crew members. :)
Third Issue: When the hell are we going to do this trip?? I know I am very limited as to when I can go. I have to take two classes this summer in order to catch up to where I need to be for the fall semester. The dates of my summer classes are: Session A: May 17 - June 16, with my final on June 21, and Session C: June 28-July 27, with my final on July 29. Now, for the first session, I go MW and a couple Friday nights, so I could invariably make time to go during session A OR we could wait until my first class ends on the 21, and go from the 24th-27th of June. If you look at your calendars you'll notice that the 24th is a Thursday. A couple of us mentioned that we should do a Thurs-Sunday trip, that way we have 2 full days of wherever we end up going. I think this is do-able, but you all have to let me know. So the bottom line of this issue is, let me know if and when you are going on vacation, that way we can plan the dates.
Ok guys, I think those are all the things I needed to cover. Let me know ASAP on each of these! I know I'm a big nerd, but just humor me! :) I'll probably end up speaking with each of you on an individual basis anyways, but people like, REBECCA and MARIEL, who I don't really have a chance to talk with a lot, e-mail me back. Ok? Cool! Let's make this happen guys! This will be our, what 6th trip? Someone do the math. From what I recall, we went either the summer of my Junior year, or the summer of my Senior year of high school. Actually, no I think it will be our 5th trip, because didn't we skip a year? I dunno. Anyways, get back to me ASAP! :)
